Info: 100 Veg. Capsules, 450 mg each
Cascara Sagrada, also known as sacred bark (from the Rhamnus purshiana [Rhamnaceae] tree), was first introduced to Spanish explorers during the sixteenth century by North American Indians. It has traditionally been used as a laxative to treat constipation, but also has potential applications for Colon Disorders, Liver Problems, and Poor Digestion. It can produce a soft or formed stool and stimulate peristalsis (the colon muscles' squeezing action) within about eight hours.
The shape of the latest bottles differ from the one shown (they are wider, and their newer labels specify veg. capsules).
